They Just Bit Off Too Much
20 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

To take the first fifty or so years of film in less than two hours is a hopeless task. And, unfortunately, the footage was some of the same old tired stuff that is seen over and over. Citizen Kane got a little treatment, but not much. When one looks at 1939, we see the most amazing set of films ever produced as a whole. How can you do justice to that. The decade by decade effort of the previous episodes had all they could do to do justice. This one was just too superficial. It's as if they didn't want to ignore most of the work and decided to throw this in.
